Great time at the Boca Black Film Festival! My organization the BFMG was one of the sponsors and since Thursday there have been incredible films, events, panels and networking. Today was an excellent day of films, panels, connection, comrodery, and the awards ceremony along with a first class lunch! Congrats to all the winners and Lindell Petus (in the pic with me) for the first industry maverick award. The founders, festival Director Lizbeth Martin and Dhima Martin did a wonderful job.
Today I put together an educational forum with one of the most beloved television mother’s of all time JoMarie Payton (in the pics) from the long running show “Family Matters” (nine years) and she was as candid as it gets about the ins and outs of the industry, it was not to be missed! I also did my own one on one about the industry after lunch and it was great to connect with the next generation of storytellers.
Congrats Boca Black Film Festival, can’t wait until next year’s event!
I love the “New Times” best of and I love a fried egg. That may seem like a strange statement, but bare with me for a minute. I posted about my love for fried eggs a couple of weeks ago when I had one for breakfast, lunch and dinner (different dishes of course). So when I went to the New Times Best of 2014 bar and eatery B&S Gastropub (get out of your gutter mind, it’s Barley and Swine), I had to go full on egg and you can too…
First, start with the craft beer, the LEXINGTON BREWING-KENTUCKY BOURBON (I usually stay home bred like the wonderful Wynwood IPA, but I did live in Kentucky for 6 years and Bourbon, so I couldn’t help it). It’s delicious so you have to try it!
Next, THE BRUSSEL SPROUT HASH: ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS+BACON ONION MARMALADE + BLUE CHEESE TOPPED WITH A POACHED EGG. It was like whoaaaaaa and the creaminess of the egg yolk blended so well…
Then a medium burger (A true medium as you can see in the pic, the only reason why I’m showing it because they got it right!), WITH PORK BELLY + CHEDDAR + CRAZY CHIP CRUNCH, TOPPED WITH A FRIED EGG, ALL ON A PRETZEL ROLL. Again, the creamy deliciousness of the fried egg blended so well with everything and the crunch, pork belly and cheddar accented the true flavor of the prime beef.
It comes with your choice of side, I chose my yum fav sweet potato fries, which rank with the best I’ve had. I had no room for desert, that will be next time and by itself. But I agree with the sign inside…Praise the Lard, it was delicious and fried eggerific! So go on and get there and get you some Barley and Swine!
